Koko brought Face Yoga with Koko to
She has some free video lessons on YouTube and her Face Yoga with Koko app. Outside of that, she charges $200 per hour for private lessons. There is also paid content on her app.
Koko’s claim is that with 3-5 minutes of exercise per day, you can slowly change the features on your face to make you appear younger and to make your face more symmetrical. Koko also pitches her Face Yoga as a non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery or Botox.
After undergoing a botched plastic surgery for her chin, she mastered face yoga. Koko was licensed to practice beauty therapy from Switzerland’s Cidesco (Comité International d’Esthétique et de Cosmétologie) and brought the practice of face yoga to the United States.
She has taught many celebrities her craft, and she has conducted in-person classes in Los Angeles, California. That said, her lifetime sales are only $17,000.
Koko is hoping to grow her online client base, however, the sharks don’t seem interested.
Mark Cuban commends her for what she has accomplished so far, but it’s just not for him, so he’s out.
Guest shark Rohan Oza doesn’t get the business, so he too is out.
Barbara Corcoran says that Koko is very entertaining, but Face Yoga with Koko isn’t the right investment for her, so she is the next shark out.
Lori Greiner thinks that in the American market, people like fast results like plastic surgery and Botox. For this reason, she is also out.
Kevin O’Leary doesn’t agree with the valuation, and like Rohan, doesn’t get the business. He is the last shark out.
With that, Koko leaves the tank empty-handed, but what happens following
We have good news to share in our Face Yoga with Koko update! The company is still in business and has gone on to appear on multiple shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Steve Harvey, and America’s Got Talent.
Koko also continues to work with many famous clients, like Kim Kardashian.
Koko’s website now features some skincare items and products to assist you with your face yoga exercises, such as medical tape, skin-balancing sugar oil, and a book of Japanese anti-aging secrets.
On her website, you can also locate other Face Yoga instructors from around the world, who we assume are trained and certified by Koko. She actually sells a certification program for a little over $3,000.
Despite not securing a deal with a shark, Face Yoga with Koko seems to be doing well as a business!
If we hear any more updates, we will make sure to be back with another Face Yoga with Koko update.
